shining us on

things I never knew

understood

was how much our elders

were shining us on

making allowances

for our innate arrogance

& we didn’t

felt able to show them

where they went wrong

without hesitation

though they loved us

without rancor

while we resisted

their insights

wisdom

on how we were

doing it

all wrong
